The Fourth Period :: Toronto Maple Leafs :: Leafs won't re-sign Joseph

Curtis Joseph's tenure with the Maple Leafs has officially come to an end, as GM Brian Burke told the Toronto Sun that the team won't be re-signing the veteran goalie.

"Great service as a Leaf," Burke said. "But we are moving on."

The Leafs are trying to lure Swedish netminder Jonas Gustavsson, and even if he elects to sign elsewhere, the 42-year-old Joseph won't return.

According to the Sun, Joseph is expected to announce his retirement some time this summer.

With Vesa Toskala in the No.1 slot, Burke did not rule out the possibility of re-signing free agent goaltender Martin Gerber to remain on board as the club's backup.

Gerber, 34, was claimed off waivers by the Leafs on March 4.
It's been fun CUJO...but it makes sense if the Leafs are close to signing Gustavsson + they have Gerber
